Sony mini hi fi shelf system reads no disk

I cannot get any cd's to play on this machine anymore. used to work fine, now all cd's go in spin around and finally the stereo says no disc. What can I do? I got a lens cleaner, but it keeps reading no disc for that too!

    The same thing happened on my Micro Hi-Fi only three years after we bought it. Then, this month, another Sony CD player (this one in a boom box, a much older unit) also developed the same problem - - it happened over a few weeks, gradually taking more and more time to recognize a disc until it stopped altogether. Now it won't even recognize the lens cleaner disc, and neither will the Hi-Fi. Any ideas, anyone, what causes this?

I burned a disc of music but doesn't play on my Panasonic CD Stereo System.


Some players are like that! You need to experiment with different makes and speed settings when recording!

My JVC stereo doesn't play cd's anymore, still runs audio for tv, and radio. What is best, low price stereo option i can hook speakers up to and play cd's again?


The CD player might just need it's lens cleaning. Best way to do this is taking the top off and cleaning the lens with either Servisol Video 40 or CD lens cleaning fluid.

Hi,
It sounds like you haven't followed the last step to the burning procedure. All you need to do once you've completed burning your disc is to Finalize the disc. Read below why you need to finalize as well as the steps to follow in order to finalize the disc.
Hope this helps ;)
How to Finalize Finalizing is writing the TOC (table of contents) on a disc so a CD player can recognize the number of tracks, the total time for each track, and their location on the disc. A recorded disc must be finalized to playback on a standard CD player. Once finalized a CD-R disc can be played on CD players that support CD-R playback. CD-RW discs can only be played on CD players that support CD-RW playback. Consult your CD player owner's manual to confirm supported formats. Finalizing is necessary to: • be able to play a recorded CD-R or CD-RW disc on a CD player • prevent further recording on a disc • avoid erasing tracks on a CD-RW disc • record text information onto a disc you record Notes: • A finalized CD-R disc can never be recorded onto again. • A finalized CD-RW disc can be unfinalized for more recording. • The CDR300 can play back unfinalized CD-R or CD-RW discs. • SYNC REC+FINAL mode automatically finalizes.
Here are the steps in order to Finalize your disk
1 Push Stop. The display shows the number of tracks and their total playing time. 2 Push FINALIZE. FINALIZE is displayed for about 3 seconds.

I have tried to record from Tape to CD with No result. I have followed the instructions for this task, to the letter and still nothing on CD.


Hi,
First make sure yoou are using correct cds. You need CDR Audio discs not blank pc media type (Yes they are different). Once you have the disc type right, make sure you are finalizing the disc as they will not play in other machines until u do this

CD pops off


Despite the lack of set-up instructions with this product, I finally figured out I had to remove the cardboard disc covering the guts of the machine.

Have you tried cleaning the unit with a "Laser Lens Cleaner?" one that uses fluid? Mp3 is a fickle format and your deck may be having issues reading it. Try running a cleaner thru it. Secondly, when you burn discs, make sure you finalize it by making it "compatable for all player types" Hope this helps

CD player stopped working on Sony ICF-CD831 PSYC Clock Radio/CD P


I've been able to prolong the life on mine by doing this:

Insert the disc, then spin it by hand and quickly close the door and hit play.

It's always worth using a laser cleaner first, as it may just be dirty and stops spinning because it cannot read the disc.

I works mechanically, but doesn't play the CD


try cleaning the lens first use a lint free swab and GENTLY clean the lens. don't use any liquid on this. if that doesn't work then load a disc and gently spin the disc when it lifts into load posistion. if begins to spin on it's own then replace the spindel motor. if it still does not spin, replace the optical pickup, the EF sensors inside the pickup no longer have the ability to read (see) the disc.
